Have you guys been utilizing the Analysis charts feature effectively? It gives you the ability to create charts that can monitor a variety of performance metrics over a week, month, or a custom time range.
Here are a few ideas on how we resolved some issues seen in the field.
Memory Usage (%) - Create a chart to track memory consumption or one or multiple VM’s over a time interval
Hypervisor CPU Usage (%) - Measure the CPU usage of one or more hosts over time and gain a better understanding of resource constraints if any
Storage Controller Latency - This is particularly useful if you suspect performance issues. Creating charts ranging to a few weeks back gives you a comparative analysis and a benchmark for the current latency observed
Storage Container Usage - A classic use case for this is when multiple VM’s have been migrated out of the cluster over many days but you suspect the storage space has not been reclaimed
Replication Bandwidth - Transmitted - If there are periodic replication schedules set and you observe that one replication is taking longer than it usually takes, this is a good place to look at.
The above are just some of the ways how Analysis has helped our customers gain better insights into their cluster performance.
